Wild Rose Casino & Resort to present Doug Allen Nash & The Johnny Cash tribute June 11 

The Wild Rose Casino and Resort in Emmetsburg will preset The Johnny Cash Tribute featuring Doug Allen Nash on Friday night.

Nash says, he has a personal connection with the legendary singer.  "I was blessed to have met Johnny Cash on a couple of different occasions.  Once, when I was on a USO show on a layover in Copenhagen, Denmark, and so I've got some pictures and some stories with Johnny, and then his son, John Carter Cash, I've done two projects with at the Cash Cabin Studios, where Johnny recorded on the estate.  So, the music is all the classics, like you'd expect to hear, Walk the Line, Sunday Morning Comin' Down, Ring of Fire, and Johnny Cash's all time favorite song is Give my Love to Rose.  A song that I wrote about Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash's relationship is also in the show, with an intimate look at Johnny Cash's studio.  We have a $50,000 light show & video wall that we put up and we run images as the show goes on, kind of telling the story, and, of course, we're die hard Johnny Cash fans, too."

The free concert will state at 7 o'clock at the Wild Rose Casino and Resort Friday evening.
